Ok, so here’s the thing; I have an Nvidia GeForce 610 and a MSI NX8600GTS. The 610 is a low-level card, made for watching HD movies and motherboards without built-in graphics. This is the card I’ve been using.
The 8600 is a fairly high level card, made back in the days when DX10 was first being introduced. It IS DX10 compatible. It is capable of running Crysis 1 on fairly high settings with very good frame rates. This is the one I had in my other computer.
The problem, is that I am replacing the 610 with the 8600. Something is causing the card not to output a signal my monitor can recognize. Through trial and error, I have limited it down to one of 3 things:
- The card is dead, even though I was using it yesterday.
- My power supply isn’t large enough.
- I need the most recent drivers.
I am currently attempting #3 and will update this thread in less than 20 minutes it it is the case.
Anyone with experience of this sort is encouraged to contribute.
